Bainbridge Island, WA – June 18, 2015 – Avalara, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based software delivering compliance solutions related to sales tax, VAT and other transactional taxes, today announced SuiteRetail Inc., a leading provider of Point-of-Sale solutions for retailers on NetSuite, has joined Avalara’s community of certified solution partners. Avalara’s solution partners are software publishers that integrate Avalara’s software as a service (SaaS) offering for sales tax management directly into their own applications.

As a result of this partnership, customers using SuiteRetail’s SuitePOS for NetSuite now have access to AvaTax™, Avalara’s cloud-based solution, to automatically calculate the sales tax amount on every POS transaction. This eliminates the tedious work and complexity of calculating taxes across multiple jurisdictions and helps businesses focus on their core offering.

AvaTax integrates seamlessly with NetSuite, which provides effortless sales tax compliance for its omnichannel retailers such as Dylan’s Candy Bar and Design Within Reach, two prominent multi-channel, multi-location retailers currently using Avalara’s solution within NetSuite.

“Sales tax compliance at the point-of-sale is a daunting challenge for retailers and countless resources are used to manage the varying rules in each region,” said Jeff Schneider, cofounder of SuiteRetail. “Our integration with Avalara assures that the sales tax for POS transactions are calculated correctly, which takes a huge burden off the shoulders of our customers.”

Pascal Van Dooren, Chief Revenue Officer at Avalara said, “This partnership allows Avalara to provide its comprehensive solutions to retailers on SuiteRetail’s POS for NetSuite in a fast, easy and cost effective way. In today’s electronic world it just doesn’t make sense to manually manage sales tax. We’re pleased to welcome SuiteRetail into our community.”
